Who would have thought
with one child’s birth
such transformation
within my heart.
No hesitation
on my part
to uproot my life
and join your side.
Witnessing your
change and growth
has brought great
expansion of my own.
A guru in an infant’s
form has shone
the light where
it had dimmed.

You’ve bowed to me
and touched my feet.
With common ground
we’ve made a link.

I pay attention
to what you teach,
no matter if
you’re only three.  

Now delight
is often near,
your joyous smile
brings sweet cheer.

These last few years
I won’t forget,
your entrance here
made my top-ten list.

Toni, aka Kanzen Sakura, asks us to offer something up along the lines of change over at dVerse Poets:  http://dversepoets.com/2015/09/15/poetics-ch-ch-changes/

  1. She is so cute ~ I look forward to having grandchildren of my own and being delighted with your company ~ There is much to learn from the child ~ Thanks for joining Gayle ~


  2. She is adorable. No wonder you enjoy having her around. Very happy poem and good form with it.


  3. Such a doll, and I can so much understand how a child can teach you so much just by asking.. You never learn from answers but from questions.


  4. Last line– ? made MY top ten list?


  5. The change and growth of children is probably one of the most joyous things in the world 🙂
    Beautifully executed.

    Lots of love,


    • I agree with you, Sanaa, they bring much joy and now I get to learn from another little person. I am so blessed. Thank you for your generous comment.
      Lots of love,


  6. Love your take on the idea of change, as there is nothing that makes change more relevant than the birth of and the growth of a child…. as they change, you are aware of your own changes. And their changes, as they grow, are definitely delightful. Your little one definitely is a beauty.


  7. So sweet 😊 children are our greatest teachers. Enjoy her 💕


  8. Eyes of child
    ancestral Truth
    Alive as Light..:)

    Yes, they are our gurus…a strong a write about a unique bone 😉


  12. How that sweet girl with her Old Soul has transformed your life. I love “I pay attention to what you teach”. Beautiful, Gayle.


    • She truly is an old soul, Sherry, and you had seen that in her with the first photo you saw of her. Thanks for coming by my friend! xo


  13. This is so sweet! Children can teach us so much. I know I learned a lot from my son when he was young (actually, I still do). It is a wise woman who pays attention to the teaching of a three-year-old. Peace, Linda


    • Thank you, Linda. She truly is wise beyond her years…I do pay attention! And my two daughters have been my greatest teachers for sure. Peace…

  14. A beautiful tribute to a beautiful little girl. I love the way her soft curls frame her face. Grandchildren can be a blessing. 🙂


    • She is a wonderful treasure, Renee. Her hair has become a mystery. She had very fine, mostly straight hair until just a few short months ago and it, seemingly overnight, started curling. New growth was curling from the top of her head and took over her other hair. Very strange. I had never seen that happen before…didn’t with my children. But it makes her look even more angelic than she already is. 🙂 xo


  15. Aw…what a wonderful tribute to your lovely little granddaughter 🙂
